No defending Sky, but would Stevo get it as wrong as this? I just posted this on the Wolves/Catalan thread -

The game certainly made an impression with the BBC. This morning, 8.30am, on BBC news I heard " the Warrington Warriors defeated the Catalan, err, Catalans in a bad trempered game last night." Great coverage by our national broadcaster.

Leaving the ticket office this morning at about 11.50am, all the sky trucks were there and I saw Stevo driving in. Then a train of thought started (dangerous I know)... He "only" had a Mondeo, so thought it probably wasn't his as he lives in Australia. As he does live in Australia, and works over here, would he pay tax?

Unless he flies back and forth during the week, I would have thought so, he'll be in the country more than 200 days of the year so should pay tax here

EDIT: As I understand it

Some cracking comments in this thread. It's all about entertainment for Sky. Eddie & Stevo do a job. Viewing figures are up, which is what they want. Bringing in the other personnel over the last couple of years though has made Eddie & Stevo more bearable.

That new pitch-side reporter who I always associate with soccer has the dullest voice ever. What happen to Bill Arthur?
